hey im about 34 weeks and i was wondering about that dark line that goes from your belly button down to your pubic bone. See i also have that line from the belly button going up to almost my br___t bone, is that normal? And will this line go away completely after birth, and if so how long after birth?

yeah i know .... what is that???

It's called Linea is caused by hormonal changes and should go away after the baby is born, although it may takes several months for it to disappear. I have it too. It's funny looking but normal. :)

i had it with my first pregnancy but not this one, Ive been told it means this one is a girl. Anyone agree?

Michelle - December 8th, 2004 12:47 PM

Yea I have it also. No L I dont agree I am having a boy!

Janet - December 8th, 2004 1:39 PM

I am also having a boy so it cannot be that the line means a girl. sorry. :(

here's a question. I'm a guy, but that line is still vaguely visible on my abdomen. Why is that?

L I do agree with you. You might be having a girl. I have it and I am having a boy. Every body else that didn't agree with you need to read the question again. LOL

well iam 31 weeks and have the same thing i am having a boy-so it doesnt mean its a girl-nice guess though:)

There is a myth a__sociated with linea nigra. if the linea nigra runs to the naval, it's a girl, and if it goes all the way up to the xyphoid, it's a boy.

Do some people never get it at all? I am 28 weeks and have no sign of it!

Umm..i have it and its only belly b___ton doown....and im having a baby friend has it going from belly b___ton down all the way up to her b___st and shes having a baby girl...ANYWAY, my point is, girl or boy, HAS NOTHING to do with your LINEA dont believe everything you see until you see the confirmed thruth in an ultrasound.

Chris - January 13th, 2005 12:24 PM

Ive got it from belly b___ton down and im having a girl...i didnt know it could run up any further than your belly b___ton

Laura - England - January 15th, 2005 5:17 PM

Aparently the dark line is due to the separation of the muscles down ya stomach... i havnt ever heard the "it could be a girl" myth. However i do know that some women get a line and others don't! I suppose it all depends on how ya body works and stretches! x

Hey L. I am having a girl and it is my first pregnancy and I have the line down my belly from my b___st bone all the way down to my pubic bone. Who knows?

candida - February 10th, 2005 1:26 PM

Its a girl! Have had the line from b___st bone all the way down to pubic bone since 12 weeks.

Kim - February 10th, 2005 8:31 PM

I am 38 weeks and this is my third pregnancy...hate to break your hearts but that brown line does not indicate a first two pregnancies I carried boys and had that line all the way from my b___st bone to my pubic bone...I do not know what I'm carrying now but I have that line again. This line is called Linea Nigrea it is cause by hormonal changes and the stretching of your not worry it does go away after pregnancy! :)
